The song “Calm Down” remix by Rema and Selena Gomez tops the Billboard Pop Airplay chart.

Rema becomes the list’s first leader with the release of the song on Jonzing World/Mavin/SMG Music/Virgin/Interscope Records.

Gomez now has four Pop Airplay No. 1 songs under her belt, adding to the previous three that she scored consecutively in 2015–16: “Hands to Myself” (for one week in April 2016), “Same Old Love” (for two weeks, January 2016), and “Good for You,” with A$AP Rocky (two, September–October 2015).

After becoming each artist’s first No. 1, “Calm Down” captures the top spot on the Rhythmic Airplay chart for a second week. Additionally, it increases in Adult Pop Airplay by 24-16 and Mainstream R&B/Hip-Hop Airplay by 35-34.

The original version of “Calm Down” was released by Nigerian singer Rema in February 2022 as a single off his debut solo LP, Rave & Roses.

The song’s Gomez remix debuted in August of last year, and the official video debuted in September.

The longest reign since the chart’s inception a little over a year ago, “Calm Down” has topped the Billboard U.S. Afrobeats Songs chart in collaboration with music festival and international brand Afro Nation for 35 weeks (through the May 6-dated survey). It makes history as the first song to top both charts.
